  1. Evening all, after a 6 month fling with a celica t sport I've now bought another Avensis...this time a 2008 1.8 tr nav. Full history etc in lovely nick, only problem is the nav screen won't tilt to allow the cd to eject . .. any ideas or is it a new head unit?!? Sent from my SM-T280 using Tapatalk
  2. Right 2 weeks in...1300 miles in a week, 900 miles to one tank of diesel and averaging close to 60mpg (would've been more but hammered it today) and can report this....i like it. My back as adjusted and I'm now fine, it handles really well and is good on a run. Stereo isn't as good but I can forgive that. Nav is good as is the Bluetooth. In short...better than the avensis BUT I don't think it's fair to compare them. In summary I still have a big soft spot for Mr T and doubt I'll ever sell it...just let HMS Insignia do the work instead. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. Well driven it to Ripon, then out to the east coast today then back up to north Durham...and I'm broken! Knackered in fact, finding it very tiring on a long run but did do 65mpg Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. One week in...i can say the stereo is better in the avensis, the fuel economy is comparable at say 60 but I drove...erm...a bit faster today and it dropped down to 52.5 but I know if I'd have done that in the avensis it'd been much lower. Interior is lovely, nothing on build quality really. Boit is better on the avensis and it's got more room in the back too although driving position is excellent on the vauxhall. The vauxhall is a good cruiser but did 4 hours in it today and was beginning to feel it which I never did in the Toyota. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  5. Update: I've booked it in for a major service...everything getting done. Can report the seating position is better and although the low speed ride is appalling compared to the avensis it does handle like it's on rails when you push it. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. Well after two years and 70k in very old t25 avensis I've retired the old girl...and bought.. a vauxhall. Yes I m disappointed but the wife decided. Kept the avensis though, she'll now do 4k a year instead of 4k a month!. New motor us ok; it's a insignia Sri diesel on a 12 plate. Boot is smaller and it's short on back seat space too. It has Sat nav and all the other toys but the ride at low speed is appalling and despite being the eco model it's only managing 8 mpg more than my standard, 12 year old 1.8 petrol can manage...we'll see how we go Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  12. I was tempted to keep going to the next petrol station!! Lol Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Well just managed that...56 litres of fuel and that mileage works out just over 48mpg on a mixture of country roads and the A1... Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
